It is also important to continue the dialogue on the Iranian nuclear issue. Russia proceeds from the assumption that every state, including Iran, has the right to pursue a civilian nuclear programme. But at the same time, there needs to be a comprehensive and international monitoring of these activities. And, finally, we need to concentrate our efforts on the fight against drug trafficking, which is why we attach great importance to cooperating with other ASEM member countries.
